Sports Chanbara, called by it's nickname "Spochan" - this Japanese term describes a battle with sticks which the young Japanese used to play. The Samurai fencing master, Kaicho Tetsundo Tanabe, transformed it into a new safe sport which can still be great fun and a way to transfer us back into the times of the Japanese Samurai or the European Knights.
